Reallocating United Express flights from AVP (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Pennsylvania), CHA (Chattanooga, Tennessee) and ITH (Ithaca, New York) from EWR to IAD
I wonder how much of DL's BNA-SEA traffic is connecting to Asia. That may be a big factor in why it is flown year-round.
I also wonder how much of WN's BNA-SEA traffic is connecting through BNA, and where that traffic connects on WN when the route is not flown.
[ Top 3 WN destination wishlist for BNA should be PDX, SJC and IND. After that, attention can turn to smaller markets such as OMA, ABQ, BDL, PVD, RIC, etc. I realize there is already plenty of capacity on BNA-SEA, especially during the summer, but will BNA-SEA ever go year-round to serve both O&...Jump to post

On the one hand, there has to be more to this story. It just seems like a waste of everyone's time to levy a $500 fine for an apple. That is hard core.
On the other hand, I've seen some Customs agents who whose attitude could definitely use an adjustment.
ATL is a machine. I know people like to look at the exceptions when it doesn't work, but those are just that--rare exceptions. And yes, there are several areas for improvement (Concourse D, for example), but it still works far more often than not. I don't see ATL being overtaken in passenger traffic...Jump to post

For me as a frequent flyer, the key difference isn't so much the ability to get upgraded to first class on an hour-long flight. It's that the presence of first class generally signifies a more comfortable aircraft in coach. And this idea that MGM is lucky to have any service at all is just silly. Go...Jump to post

On a separate note, the BNA-TUP “add” looks like an extension of existing service. That’s an interesting route. It’s thin but is one of the few ~200 mile drives left in the region that is a real pain. What?

DL flies to so few secondary southeast U.S. markets from DTW year-round, even ones with much higher traffic than ILM. There used to be a fairly robust level of year-round service from DTW into many secondary markets in the Southeast, but when DL began upgauging equipment to ATL much of that went awa...Jump to post

I could see G4 adding CVG-BNA but I think if they did, WN might enter and try to drive them off. I don't see WN giving up market share in BNA if they can help it. Since it's only a 4-hour drive, though, with no connectivity at either end, I can't imagine G4 would look at it. Almost all of G4's rout...Jump to post
AVL-DEN seems like it might be difficult with only a 7000 foot runway. The A320 at MTOW requires nearly 6,900 feet at sea level and the A319 7,100. It will depend on their paperwork, config etc but that seems to be pushing it. The 7000-foot runway is only temporary while the primary runway has been...Jump to post

That is good. The last OAG showed decreased capacity for just about every G4 route out of AVL. How is AVL-EWR doing?
Is it just me or is G4 reducing/cutting a lot of frequencies.
